In the Ukrainian market of EPS-plates continued the season of high demand. Large processors demand for products on average higher than small and medium last month, according to the ICIS-MRC Price Survey.
Against the background of the saturation of the domestic market for foamed polystyrene (PSV-C), there is high price competition. Small PSV-C traders find it difficult to compete with large traders. The slight delays with the shipment of Russian material from the warehouse in Voronezh had no effect on the market as a whole.
The cost of Chinese and Russian PSV-S last week was in the range of 42 500-45 000 UAH per tonne, CPT Kiev, VAT included. Demand for material on the upper boundary of the price quote is low.
